A Kick-off to the Holidays Giveaway!

I am so excited to share that my Etsy shop is now officially up and running. It is stocked with items from my home decor collection, Matthew Mead Vintage, and new and vintage items will continue to be added regularly. To celebrate my grand opening, I am giving away ONE of my Three-Tier Stands:
 Our three-tiered grand stand kit is crafted for festive entertaining and detailed decorating.  Three sturdy tiers, that can be configured in six different ways, can hold cupcakes or a collection of alabaster in commanding style.  Included in the kit are two shades of velvet ribbon in green or pewter to customize your display. The stand can be assembled in single tiers to hold bottles and candles and all types of collectibles, or double and triple tiered for floral centerpieces, favors, or dessert displays. Makes a great tower for potted herbs, is perfect for a wine, cheese and antipasto course, or embellish it with your holiday cards as a mini tree. Team with our jelly jars for wedding flowers, favors, table seating stations.  Stand is finished in a warm, neutral cream-colored antiqued finish.
Enter to win by leaving a comment telling me what you use for a  centerpiece on your holiday table. Do you switch it up each year, plan your tablescape ahead of time, or simply allow the turkey to hold court?
For an additional entry, simply Tweet, Facebook or share the link to this post on your own blog about our new magazine and giveaway for an additional chance to win! Be sure to let us know how you shared so we can enter you twice!
Good luck, and be sure to visit our holiday shop

  2. I have a reindeer candle holder. I put flameless candles in it and then some garland around it.
    There was time when I have a snowman that I put in the middle of the table made of glass.
    I also have a collection of some nutcracker that make a great centerpiece theme.

  3. We love using fresh flowers in lovely fall colors. I've seen pumpkins used as the vase and think I might try that this year.

  4. I have a gorgeous quilted pumpkin table runner on our nook table; I won it from Judy over at Green Fairy Quilts! It's beautiful! Sitting on top I have a stuffed quilted pumpkin in the middle with a small "Share Your Harvest" wooden saying attached to the pumpkin stem twines. On each side of the larger center pumpkin I have two smaller quilted pumpkins found at a craft show in Williamsburg, VA many years ago.

    As much as I love all the tangible displays of fall as my centerpiece, my favorite is the attitude and action that goes behind the "Share Your Harvest" plaque!

  5. I like using natural materials like pinecones and greenery. Add a pop of color with candles.

  7. I wish I could think of something fabulous but it's usually just the turkey!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I like to use candles and the food as our centerpiece.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Everything I am using to decorate for fall this year is all natural from our yard. I would use the tiered stand for the centerpiece on our buffet filled with candles and beautiful leaves and fruit from our yard. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I use a table runner, food, pine boughs and cones. What a beautiful stand!

    ReplyDelete
  11. This is my first year having anything in the center of our table:) I am planning on the children making something festive on Wednesday for our Thanksgiving table..

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love stands like these to fill in the Fall with acorns and pinecones and candles and for Xmas to put vintage pink Christmas bulbs, for weddings, vintage cake toppers and lace, they are so versatile and yours is a GORGEOUS stand! Love love! Susan purrpage3 at verizon dot net

  14. We use a grateful tree as our centerpiece each year. This is our 3rd year doing that since we are a new family. I grab a cool branch from outside put it in a vase then we hand waterpaper leaf cutouts from the branches were we have written what we are thankful for. After our meal, I move the tree to another resting place and keep adding to it.

    I love the display on your cake stand. I never thought to do that. You are so creative and I am glad that NeiNeidialogues introduced me to you.

    Have a festive Thanksgiving.

  17. My holiday centerpiece is a wooden turkey and candy dish for Thanksgiving and then for Christmas I have a little decorated tree that I did for a craft along with a candy jar decorated as Rudolph! I LOVE the holidays! tonidreist@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  18. How nice! I will be using this to put all my old manger scene
    animals on that I've collected over the years! I'm thinking
    of using burlap and straw on the different layers! Thank
    you for such a nice giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I use stands like these for desserts.Makes all the yummy goodies look well presented.Warm Blessings!~Amy

    ReplyDelete
  20. What a lovely piece! For Thanksgiving usually the turkey is the star of the show, but I do love to use little pumpkin gourds and dress them up with sparkles. For Christmas I like to use my Christmas cactus, but this year since I am missing home I want to use pine boughs and pine cones with pomegranates to decorate. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  21. It is so beautiful but I think I'd use turquoise and bronze Christmas ornaments to complement my holdiay decor!

    ReplyDelete
  22. The turkey is holds court. I do add a cornucopia with leaves and a pumpkin and name cards. It is fun to see your name on a plate. Happy Holidays to you!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, my... what a lovely display & I truly would LOVE a chance at that 3 tiered treasure... THANK YOU, for offering such a thing! Ummmm... centerpiece at my home changes from one year to the next... this year I have taken a old, large light fixture that has a deep, frosted look & used a a basin. I then added a large, white ironstone pitcher & placed in the center with 'Blackie' Sweet Potato Vine (leftover from the summer planters) that has rooted already of course... & I might add has started trailing over... Pinecones, gourds, acorns, bittersweet & votives are nestled in the basin... Who knows, what else will be added before Thanksgiving Day!

    Warm Blessings,
    Pamela

  24. I usually start with a quilted table topper (I'm a quilter). And on top it varies from year to year. It usually includes some vintage finds layered with natural elements like pine branches and pine cones. This year I am loving silver vintage finds like old trophies. would love to add this to my stash!

    ReplyDelete
  25. This will only be the second season that we will be celebrating on our wonderful Pennsylvania handcrafted farm table, so I am still gathering up my ideas. After reading a few of the comments, I think that my creative juices are flowing! The cake stand is beautiful and might just take center stage if it found it's way to Northwest Indiana!!! Blessings all around :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't usually have a centerpiece because the table is full of food... but if I had this I'd make room for a centerpiece!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your website is beautiful and your book looks wonderful! I like to decorate with natural things I can find outside like pinecones and branches. Putting them in a beautiful bowl or vase makes a simple yet elegant centerpiece. Thanks for doing a giveway!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am a newly-wed .. going on two years now! This is our VERY FIRST Thanksgiving that we will be hosting! I am very excited and have been mulling over ideas for the coveted dinner table. I wanted something sentimental and original. I decided to ask couples to send me a copy of their wedding pictures, old and young! I am going to set them down the center of the table as main focal points among other flowers and deco. This way, it makes for laughs, great conversation and sweet memories for everyone. Cute, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Center piece varies but typically involves flowers or something from nature! Love this give-a-way!! Thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just married into a family who hasn't had this favorite and famous family recipe of fruit cake and I would show it off as an accomplishment. It hasn't been made in 12 years and my new husband and I are going to take it head on! What a nice thing it would be to have it displayed to all who come over to our apartment come Christmas time and delight in the (hopefully) good tasting treat. This tear stand would make it look extravagant

    ReplyDelete
  31. We usually have so much food on the table there is no room! However, if we won this I would have to change my ways!

    ReplyDelete
  32. The turkey is usually my centerpiece. I get so frazzled wanting the food to be perfect that I often forget the pretty little touches like a lovely table. Great giveaway! Thanks!

  34. I haven't hosted my own Thankgiving yet, but this year will be the first. I think a centerpiece with seasonal flowers and something with a little sparkle always look great. This would be a fabulous centerpiece for EVERY occasion. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Generally the Turkey is our centerpiece, but now you have me thinking that I may change it up this year. At Christmas, though, the Advent Calendar is our centerpiece all season long.
    I share you on Facebook. A LOT. And I am going to share this link now.
    Thanks, Matthew!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Each year is different...but it usually includes an assortment of candles of different heights in various containers with an natural arrangement of some sort: fruit, leaves, pine cones, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I can just picture it....candy canes hanging from the edges and white, frothy cupcakes topped with crushed candy canes. Yep, that will be my Christmas dinner centerpiece!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Our traditional centerpiece has always been the turkey, with candles at either end - usually tall ones in crystal.

    ReplyDelete
  39. My extended family all meet together... grandparents, aunts and uncles, grandkids, and great grandkids. It is quite a crowd! Because of this we hold Thanksgiving at a local church house and take over the entire cultural hall/gym. There are many round tables set up, with table cloths, runners, place settings, and centerpieces. There are also several long rectangular serving tables set up with all the food as well as small decorations scattered throughout. Last, but not least, there is a table set up just for my mom's famous pies! The centerpieces and serving table decorations are things found in nature... scattered leaves, various gourds and small pumpkins, acorns, floral arrangements, pinecones, branches or twigs in vases, cornucopias etc. My grandmother uses her collection of beautiful white serving pieces for the food. This 3 tiered stand would fit in PERFECTLY! I can see it holding my uncle's famous hors d'oeuvres. Beautiful AND delicious! Thanks for the opportunity to own this stand!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Jars filled with an assortment of red and white candy! It is so much fun to hunt for just the right red and white candy (because not just any candy is right for the job) to fill my beloved jars...some vintage and others new addtions to my jar family. I LOVE it so...

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have a green glass cake stand that I found at a goodwill type store. I usually put a cream pillar candle in the middle and then I put pinecones, cranberries, silk fall leaves etc around it....simple, but elegant.

    ReplyDelete
  42. For thanksgiving i usually reuse and mini pumpkin gourds and dress them as turkeys/pilgrims, or even votive holders. We sometimes also still have dried flowers/berries outside to make a nice fall arrangement. Christmas is a free-for-all, different every year.

    ReplyDelete
  43. We change it up every year a bit but always includes beautiful fall things gleaned from the yard, some fresh flowers and candles. This beautiful piece would be loved and used often for every big occasion!

    ReplyDelete
  44. It changes every year but this year I have a vintage mirror with a stone vase filled with ornamental oregano. Next to the vase is a vintage turkey salt shaker and a beautiful card with the words "so grateful" that my daughter made for my November birthday. I would love this 3 tiered stand. I hope I win!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. A long wooden candle holder. The kind with holes for several votives. Lots of pumpkins that I have collected over the years.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm so embarrassed to say this when we moved to our new house our old dining set would not fit and we sold it with our home along with my beautiful living room furniture. We have not had the money to get a new dining room set. No centerpiece and just our laps as a table.

    ReplyDelete
  47. It changes each year - sometimes its candles. Others it is homemade decor or vases of flowers. I enjoy switching it up based on the number of people coming + if kids will be sitting at the main table.

    ReplyDelete
  48. As this is my first year hosting, I am keeping it simple. A large basket of pinecones, circled by golden tea lights. Let's just hope this is enough to satisfy everyone in case the turkey doesnt turn out well!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Shut the Front Door Matthew Mead. Everything you do is perfection. I usually celebrate at my mothers house so she does the centerpieces but I usually help with the place cards and we end up crafting after the meal and get glitter everywhere. When I have my own meal at my house someday there will be platters of pumkins, cute place cards, and maybe some gorgeous flowers. Happy Thanksgiving!

    ReplyDelete
  50. This year it will be a flower filled pumpkin!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Our centerpiece consists of cake plates! I collect them--and find they are the best way to add height and dimension! And the food is the focal point on many levels! :)
    Would absolutely loooove this piece as my own! Happy Thanksgiving Week!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I shared a link to your giveaway on Facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love this piece! My centerpieces change every year because I choose a new color scheme every year. Everything from the decor to the tree to the gift wrap all matches and it is so fun! I find little pieces on sale everywhere the year before (at the holiday sales) and have all year to plan my color coordinated centerpieces! This year is gold and brown and will be so fun! Lots of different heights and candles and of course yummy food!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Not sure what our good friends that we're celebrating Thanksgiving with will do for their centerpiece, but I think I'd keep my sunflowers on my table if it were here.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Definitely the turkey. I am so decorating challenged.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Every year is different. I have the Christmas eve party every year for family and love to change it up with colors, different centerpieces, and different dishes. Love your cake plate. Beautiful color and lines. Happy Holidays to you.

    ReplyDelete
  57. We use a bowl full of mini pumpkins as our centerpiece . . . until the kids get to the pumpkins and then it's just an empty bowl. :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Right now my table consists of burlap, my white ironstone dishes and blue mason jars in the middle with tea lights in them, along with leaves sprinkled throughout. Thanks for the chance at this wonderful giveaway.

  60. I use an assortment of gourds and fall leaves.

    ReplyDelete
  61. The turkey is the honored guest at our holiday table. But I do give him a place of honor with a table cloth, runner, cloth napkins and small gourds, pine cones, fall leaves and nuts arranged in silver bowls.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I've never been put together enough to have a centerpiece on my holiday tables. But, I would like to change that!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I've got to admit I rely heavily on whatever nature provides...grassy seed heads, pinecones, flowers, beautiful fruit, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Usually the Turkey, because anything too tall would make it difficult to talk with the people I LOVE the very most in this world. When were not eating I love to have flowers on my table, next to a picture of Jesus Christ. :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. i would use this on my kitchen island which is 6ft by 6ft. on the top tier i would place a tall vase of flowers and on the rest what is bountiful in nature right now...leaves, nuts, pinecones, greenery and so on.

    ReplyDelete
  66. so i love the food on the table with the turkey in the middle, flowers on the side. except this year, i think i am going to put some layer different colored lentils with a candle in the middle, all in large circular vases. i saw it at whole foods at the table where you order your turkey and it was so simple and pretty, a job i could give my children that they would love! crossing my fingers...love this stand! thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

  67. Flowers/cook books/candles all on cake plates;)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I scatter small glass votives, with lit candles, around the table. The food is on platters,etc. between the scattered votives - simple, yet elegant.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I use a green Westmoreland compote & candlesticks that we got for a wedding gift 38 years ago. I put vintage glass ornaments & greenery in it.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I would love to win the cake stand! I have been needing a lovely stand like this to display desserts or appetizers. As for my Thanksgiving table decor, I have a grey pumpkin wrapped in artificial bittersweet berries and then a few ornamental gourds scattered around that. Saw it on Pinterest!

  72. This year my 4 year old made a paper bag turkey that is our center piece. My favorite decorations are those of my sweet kids.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I Love it! I use all kinds of things but lately its been an old seed shaker or my ironstone platters!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Growing up my dad always had us try one new food before Thanksgiving dinner. The idea was to open our minds to new foods, along with being grateful for all that we enjoy. One year much to my mothers dismay he unveiled a lovely prepared pigs head with an apple in its mouth. He had a grin on his face in anticipations of my moms reaction. My mom gasped at the sight of it (as did we all) and we were oh so grateful that it was only meant as a "centre piece" not something we were to eat. It think a couple of picture were taken and that thing was promptly removed from the table. haha. I'd say a that beautiful three tier stand would be a huge step up from the old days for sure!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. OMG! I want that cake stand! Gorgeous!! I love organic, things from nature for my centerpiece, with a little sparkle for a contrast. Leaves, pumpkins, gourds, and glittered items w/ candles too of course!

    ReplyDelete
  76. My centre piece is a large glass bowl with ostrich eggs and green leaves or an african basket filled with a collection of shells. If I can´t choose I´ll put it on two different tables. Enjoy your holidays and happy Thanksgiving! Inspirational site, nice ideas, good pictures. Thanks for sharing your creativity and decorating ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I always love pumpkins and fall themed flowers for my Thanksgiving table... plus sweet smelling bee's wax candles scattered here and there for a soft glow.

    I would LOVE.... to win this centerpiece from you... I would fill it with small handcrafted gifts... to give my family and friends... as a way of saying thank you for being in my life... a nice family tradition I started a few years ago.

    Thank you for all you give Matthew and Jennifer

  78. My Thanksgiving centerpiece usually always consists of a pumpkin and candles. Last year lovely Valorie Hart sent me some beautiful candles and I've used them sparely to make them last and will be using them again this year on my table.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I will be at other people's houses on the actual holidays, but MY table will have some combination of little Christmas trees and candles :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. This year I am using my homegrown "giant" pumpkin from my garden and a little turkey candle that was used when my husband was a child.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I usually decorate with small pots of mums set on an autumn colored table runner. Platters and dishes of food fill the rest of the table!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I just posted a link to your giveaway and webshop

    ReplyDelete
  83. I adore the three tiered stand and for Thanksgiving I would use it to serve rainbow jellow in glass dishes. The kids love it! Other times of year it would be adorned with mini flowers and seasonal doodads like easter eggs, american flags, and pumpkins:)

    ReplyDelete
  84. I just ask my Mom what she wants to do :) She would love the stand!

    ReplyDelete
  85. We always use to gather as a family and decorate sugar cookies. We always try to decorate the best so they make it to the plate which is put in the center of our dinner table. It would be great to put them on this beautiful stand.

    ReplyDelete
  86. This is the first year I've had a kitchen table. I got a pretty glass vase and filled it with pinecones.

    ReplyDelete
  87. This year's centerpiece is an antique glass fruit bowl filled with pine cones and winter berries. Simple and joyful!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Usually we have a festive table runner with mini pumpkin gourds and a couple of heirloom candle holders. But if I had this piece, it would replace everything!! So beautiful...love, love!!
    I posted this link on Facebook :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. We don't have a centerpiece we use for the holidays - we really need your cake server!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Usually the turkey is the centerpiece for us. However, your 3 tier stand brings wonderful possibilities and could change our tradition!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Love it!!! I have a large hurricane Vase that i place a retry candle in and some fall leaves around...still young enough to pack up myself his bad and kids and enjoy the turkey elsewhere :)

    ReplyDelete
  92. *large candle. Also I would use the new tiered stand for favorite holiday treats :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. Maybe some fall colored flowers & some leaves, but we usually let the food do all the talking!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I have a mixture of old and new pieces that I rotate for centerpiece displays. I especially like a sweet ceramic turkey I found at a local store.

  96. Since we have little ones, we usually stick to a cute table runner and something simple and unbreakable. :)

    ReplyDelete
  97. I have been collecting my favorite child-made ornaments from my kids and we put some on the tree and some on our table.
    The kids love to get involved in moving things, adding dinosaurs, robots, leaves and rocks from outside, and other fun non-holiday items that look great with the antique ornaments I have collected. Lately I am into the Japanese Putz houses.

    ReplyDelete
  98. This holiday season I would decorate it with my beautiful gold ball glass ornaments in varying sizes along with christmas tree sprigs. Thanks for offering this giveaway it really is beautiful.

  99. Fresh flowers and candles.
    One time, I made sugared fruit - and my mother-in-law wanted to eat it!

    ReplyDelete
  100. My husband and I are celebrating our second married Christmas together. We are fresh out of college and love decorating our little apartment. Our centerpiece is a Christmas tree we painted and decorated out of wooden blocks. It's simple, but sweet to us. :)

    ReplyDelete
  101. gourds and small pumpkins and bronze painted pinecones

    ReplyDelete
  102. During dinner the turkey is definitely the main attraction on the table - but throughout the rest of the season it changes year to year. Or even daily :-D

  105. For Thanksgiving, I use a vintage pedestal bowl filled with tiny pine cones along with a few vintage Thanksgiving postcards. Simple but sweet. For Christmas, I fill the bowl with vintage ornaments. I love your Holiday magazine. Thanks for considering me for your gracious give-a-way.
    Happy Holidays!

  106. I tend to just let the food take center stage & don't do a centerpiece. A pretty table cloth & lots of yummy food are usually enough. If I happen to win your gorgeous cake stand, it would probably be featured as a centerpiece this year!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I usually do a small array of varying sized candles. For Christmas, it is a carousel my parents gave me years ago. It would be fun to shake it up a little, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  108. We have a small table...so mostly food. I have started using tiny fake pumpkins with a slit across that stem to hold printed (off my computer in a fancy font on nice paper) place cards.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I switch it up every year but if I can't seem to think of an idea flowers are always my go to with candles as well :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. I use whatever "speaks" to me. Sometimes it's fresh flowers in a quirky vase, sometimes it's a combo of flowers and candles or a holiday decoration...sometimes it's just votives in sand or the food itself....BUT I LOVE your tiered piece and would use it at my holiday book club meeting to be sure!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I have a black rustic bowl with decorations that change with each holiday/season. I've had the same centerpiece for years. Your tiered piece would be the PERFECT update to my kitchen!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I switch it up but I have a large collection of vintage ornaments I love to display in different ways

    ReplyDelete
  113. LOVE the stand.....so classic and versatile! I switch my centerpiece up each year usually finding inspiration in a magazine or book but giving it my own twist. I'll admit though that hunting down each component, whether from a store or from my own collection, is half the fun.

  115. Centerpiece? What's a centerpiece? I am doing good to keep the table wiped clean! Would love that gorgeous stand!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Usually the turkey holds that place of prominence. I use a floral centerpiece on the sideboard. I have retweeted your link to this page. Crossing my fingers that I might be the winner of your lovely tiered stand.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I use a red poinsetta plant!

    ReplyDelete
  118. I shared your link on Facebook! :)

    ReplyDelete
  119. I usually use a festive table runner and I vary the centerpiece whether it be pine cones and greenery or Christmas balls. Really it is never bought but rather re-purposed. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Something different every year. This year the mayflower . . .

    ReplyDelete
  121. For Thanksgiving, my collection of old/new ceramic turkeys always adorn the table.
    Christmas is something different each year - this year it will be little snow houses/trees in glass vases.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I always tend use apothacary jars filled with different seasonal items... for christmas last year, I used tangerines and cloves with fresh greenery. It was cheerful and festive. I could see using the tiered stand to display something similar!

    ReplyDelete
  123. I use a wreath placed flat on the table surrounded by votives and squash & miniture pumpkins- I change it up all the time! Thank you for offering a giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  124. I love trays. I change it up each year. This year in the tray I used a white pitcher with festive foliage, pinecombs, pumpkins and a vintage thanksgiving sign. Thank you for the chance to win your beautiful cake stand.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Here in So. California we don't have seasons so I use silk flowers, pinecones, etc. to do a table arrangement each year in fall colors.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I usually stay a little traditional with the cornucopia filled with fall flowers and fruits. Then a couple candles on either side. Always looks beautiful but maybe Its time for a change. The cake stand would be beautiful done in Fall attire...

    ReplyDelete
  127. This year I have candles. Holders include an owl and several turkeys. So excited!

    ReplyDelete
  128. our turkey definitely holds court!

    ReplyDelete
  129. This year I have this cool black metal thing that holds five little lanterns as a backdrop. I also have a glass pumpkin, very pretty fake Indian corn and glittery gold leaves, with some little black birds as an accent. The centerpiece always gets removed before dinner, though. Have to make room for all that food, you know!

  130. Our centerpieces usually are a combination of flowers and candles.

  131. Love to contrast white and orange mini-pumpkins, and autumn orange pumpkin ceramics and seasonal whiteware. I find that the whiteware and white pumpkins are an acquired taste that increases with time.

    ReplyDelete
  132. On our table will be the pilgrims my mother made me years ago with some candles and flowers. I love your tiered dessert stand and it would be perfect for the December bridal shower I am having in my home.
    Thanks going to go check out your store.

  133. It changes but one thing I'm silly over is a solid plate and glasses. Come from a big family so I understand the desire to use paper/plastic but I will sign up for dish duty when I don't host so we can have real plates and glasses!! They are just as important as the centerpiece!
    Love the stands.

  134. We usually use whatever centerpiece craft the kids made at school. They are always so proud of their, how can you NOT use it?!

  135. It varies from year to year, but I love the look of a hurricane vase with a variety of spherical ornaments inside. The best part is you can change the color of the ornaments to suit the style you want and it adds color to the room!

  136. I switch it up each year depending on what speaks to me. This year I had a vintage iron basket with two pears made from twigs and a fabric turkey nestled in also! I love the white tiered centerpiece you are giving away. Thank you for your inspirational ideas.

  137. I vary by year but this year I was lazy and just used the turkey on a cute platter. I also have some leaf bowls that I normally use or a cornucopia filled with flowers and twigs.

  139. I love using individual mini-vases filled with flowers at each place setting. It's so colorful and leaves lots of room for all the food in the middle of the table along with the candles.

  141. I would totally use that stand as my Christmas centerpiece! We usually get a nice arrangement delivered just before Thanksgiving from one of the in-laws, and that is the centerpiece most years!

  145. This year it was some blue-ish white pumpkins from the farmers market with some dried grasses. I get my inspiration from nature.
